Camp Gan Israel is the largest and fastest growing network of Jewish day camps in the world. Camp Gan Israel enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trendsetter with innovative ideas, creative programs and new activities.
Camp Gan Israel Chamah was established in 1999 and has been providing an exciting day camp experience for Jewish boys and girls for over twenty years. We are located at 60 West End Avenue in the Greater Brighton Beach area, and our program is for children ages five through twelve.
Campers experience our vibrant culture through exciting hands-on activities, including Shabbat parties, Challah baking, Jewish story-telling and Jewish art. Each new week focuses on a different Judaic theme that is brought to life by the unique activities.
Our innovative arts and crafts teach the children to be creative and imaginative. The crafts incorporate various themes in Jewish life as well as fun and useful projects. Campers are sure to proudly look back at the craft of their own hands well after the summer is over.
The children are guided in organized activity and play by loving, patient and caring staff.
Our camp offers your child a full program of sports, games, trips, crafts, dramatics and other enriching camp activities. Our experienced and dedicated staff work to develop skills, confidence and a sense of fair play within each child.
If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with us.
The Camp Directors,
Rabbi Efraim and Chanie Zaltzman
